It's showing a list of applications that have unread notifications since you locked your desktop.

In this case, Remmina had a notification for you, like that a remote session had disconnected.

The lock screen means that you can see what is happening while your computer is locked, and it allows you to get a summary of what has been happening while you have been away.
